As we get older, the signs of aging start to show up, most often on the skin and face. Even if you still feel young, you might be noticing new wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin every day. This can be exacerbated by prior sun damage, poor skin care, or elements out of your control like your genes. Many of us find it difficult to deal with an aging appearance, especially when the mirror is not reflecting how good you feel mentally and physically.
For some, the idea of a face lift can seem daunting. Many people are frightened by the thought of surgery but feel drawn to improve their appearance. Luckily, drastic surgery is not the only option for those hoping for a more youthful appearance. At Skin MB in Nashville, we offer several medical spa services that can produce the same effects of a face lift, without the surgery.
Botox And Dysport®
Botox and Dysport® injections are a popular way to treat the signs of aging. These injectables are quick, efficient, effective, and lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The injection takes approximately 10 minutes and requires no recovery time. After a few days, the results will appear, revealing smoother and younger looking skin. While the results last quite a while, they are not permanent, so you are not stuck with any changes forever. Common areas that these injections are used for include frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead wrinkles and creases, crow’s feet, and wrinkled or sagging skin on the neck.
In the continuing effort for a more youthful appearance, you might consider dermal fillers. While Botox works to relax facial muscles to reduce wrinkles, dermal fillers fill in trouble areas making your skin look plumper and smoother. This can combat the sagging or sometimes sunken appearance that can be caused by aging. These fillers are injected into the area of concern by an esthetician. The process is quick and does not require recovery time. The different dermal fillers available at Skin MB include:
- Juvederm® – This filler addresses wrinkles, folds, and lip augmentation. It can be used to add beautiful fullness and contour to the lips and cheeks or used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and deep lines. You’ll be left with a more sculpted look.
- Restylane® – As we age, we tend to lose volume in our skin that can lead to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, or sagging. This filler helps to restore volume to the skin, smoothing wrinkles and folds. This is good for areas of concern such as the hands, lips, cheeks, and forehead.
The Benefits of a Non-Surgical Face Lift
The combined benefits of Botox or Dysport® and dermal fillers gives the visual result of a face lift, without the surgery, pain, or permanency. Both procedures involve injections rather than surgery, and you will not have to worry about the time it takes to heal like a face lift. These injections can be done quickly, and you can go about your day. While we are sure you will love the results, you don’t have to worry about being stuck with them permanently. The results last up to four months, and you can refresh your fillers or choose to let them dissolve. You will get the results of a face lift without the commitment.
